"ITs a xmas i will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning.. I will never stop missing you xx."

Fawaz's Twitter photo is of him giving Michael a kiss on the tweet, and his bio now reads, "I will never stop missing you xxx."

Fawaz and Michael had been romantically linked for the past few years. Though Fawaz's Twitter account is not verified, Michael was following it. Before retweeting photographer John McRae early Monday, Fawaz hadn't posted since September 2015.

ET has reached out to Michael's rep.

Michael died of heart failure on Sunday. His U.S. manager confirmed to ET that the "Father Figure" singer had not been ill.
